Business Revolving Loan Fund Program
Communities Available: All Scott County, MN Communities
The Scott County Community Development Agency (CDA) serves the people and businesses in Scott County. The CDA’s mission is to invest in possibilities to live and work in Scott County – the creation of a Revolving Loan Fund (RLF) for local businesses supports this mission by providing opportunities for current and prospective businesses to develop and expand within the County.
What is a Revolving Loan Fund?
A Revolving Loan Fund is a widely used financing tool that provides gap-financing measures for developing and expanding small businesses that cannot obtain financing through traditional sources. It is a self-replenishing pool of funds, utilizing interest and principal payments on prior loans to issue new loans and cover program costs.
Scott County’s goal is to have enough jobs for 50% of the County’s residents by 2030. The RLF is another extension of our efforts to support this goal by assisting with development and expansion initiatives for current and prospective businesses in Scott County. These efforts, in turn, will provide additional employment opportunities within the County. Additionally, the match requirements required by the RLF will leverage additional private investment toward those goals. The CDA has partnered with NextStage to administer the RLF, based on their expertise and experience in evaluating potential loans for businesses and administering approved loans.
